"At A Siding"
Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Mickey Hart

While you were gone
These faces filled with darkness
The obvious was hidden
With nothing to believe in
The compass always points to Terrapin
(@Robert Hunter, 1977>eternity)

A nice version for the Lunar Eclipse courtesy of David Lemieux & Rhino:

[18 Mar 1977 - Winterland]
"Lady With A Fan>Terrapin Station>Terrapin Transit>At A Siding>Terrapin Flyer"

http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section/march-12-march-18-2007

Notes from the "clearlight.com" web site: "It was only played live once by the Dead, on 18 March 1977, along with an instrumental version of "At A Siding" and a short attempt at Terrapin Flyer - the three are often listed as "Alhambra" on track lists." [http://www3.clearlight.com/~acsa/intro.htm]

One other item I noticed on this recording: instead of singing, "While the story teller speaks, a door within the fire creaks..." Jerry replaces the word "door" with "wall" and adds a little extra emphasis to it --- I have no idea what that means, however if you choose to listen to it you will hear that he deliberately uses the word "wall" and it's not a "flub" (man, I hate that word -- "flub" --- and how often it is noted regarding Jerry's singing tunes.)
